This week we celebrate the French World Cup victory, particularly highlighting the music of the countries from which the immigrant players came or to which they have family ties: Congo, Cameroon, Guinea, Algeria, Mauritania, Senegal, Togo, Mali, Angola, and Morocco. Plus a few other gems in the last segment of the show.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup has begun in Brazil. So that’s going to be a big distraction for me over the next month, and I don’t want you to feel left out so I’ll spin lots of soccer-themed songs this week. And probably more over the next four weeks as well.

Whether you call it fußball, football, soccer, futbol, or just the beautiful game, you can’t avoid it this month as the FIFA World Cup comes to South Africa for the next month. Work stops, the moods of nations rise and fall with the performance of their select 11. Spin The Globe rung in the start of the competition (Yea South Africa!) with music about soccer and from the nations in the competition. And on June 12 we’ll be watching for a repeat of that 1950 result; sorry my English friends…
